Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd (TSMC) recently announced that it has started to use the Solido Variation Designer in its Analog/Mixed-Signal (AMS) Reference Flow 2.0 for its 28nm design infrastructure.

The Solido Variation Designer product suite utilizes efficient simulation management techniques including device and interconnect level analysis through the TSMC LDE API interface.

The suite analyzes and applies simulation resources to minimize variation impact on design specifications, identify electrical hotspots, fix specification failures and reduce late-stage layout impacts.

In a blind global survey of 486 engineers and engineering managers conducted by Solido in April, two-thirds of designers and managers named variation-aware design as a top segment where technology advancement is needed over 2011 and 2012.

"By using Solido Variation Designer with TSMC models, our customers can minimize late-stage changes due to process variations and layout-dependent effects," said Amit Gupta, president and CEO of Solido Design Automation Inc., in a statement.
